Mariners sign Kameron Loe

Seattle has reportedly added the right-hander on a minor-league deal.

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

The Mariners have signed right-hander Kameron Loe to a minor-league deal and will officially announce the signing sometime Tuesday, reports Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times.

Loe was reportedly at the Mariners' facilities today, but nothing has been announced to this point.

Loe, 31, pitched last season for the Brewers. He threw 68⅓ innings for them, pitching his way to an ERA of 4.61. The right-hander had a much better go of things during his first two seasons in Milwaukee -- as did the rest of the Brewers' bullpen -- posting a 3.18 ERA and 2.1 BB/9 rate in 130⅓ innings of relief.

He is mostly a middle reliever, but accumulated two saves last season so he can be used as a closer if an emergency arises.

It is likely he is only in M's camp to provide competition, but with a solid three seasons for the Brewers under his belt he may be one of the better candidates for their bullpen.

Loe was at one time considered a very good prospect, surfacing originally in 2004 with the Rangers at age 22. He pitched his way to a 3.42 ERA in 2005, but was never able to repeat his age-23 performance.
